Artist Statement →
I have chosen the past, present and future as the theme of my pictures. The predominantly circular lines in my pictures symbolize that everything is in motion, but the past, now and the future are closely linked. In each picture I have used a different symbolism: cherry blossom, chrysanthemum and pheasant, which are important in Japan. In the first picture one of the worst events of World War II was the dropping of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima. In the picture I added cherry blossoms. The past should not be forgotten, but spring leads to a better future without war and suffering. In the second picture the "Kiku" - symbol of immortality and perfection, how a friendship should be, like the friendship of two painters, my father Tadeusz Radwan and Tetsuro Kimura and mine. In the third picture, the pheasant is a symbol of beauty in my imaginary landscape, which I put together from various photos. Once I would like to see that.
